About the Show

The award-winning Netflix series centers on Seong Gi-hun, who is invited to play a series of children's games against other debt-laden individuals. The winner of the series takes home a multi-million dollar jackpot, but the losers all die. The series smashed Netflix records with over 1.6 billion hours of streaming in its first four weeks on the site, making it Netflix's #1 show.

The first season of the series includes 9 episodes, and a second season is under consideration. Producers have hinted that there may be additional expansions of the franchise in the future.
